Does Donald Trump Want The Republicans To Win?

Trump In The News As Mid Terms Close In

Remember that story about the election and how can each party keep their biggest liability out of the news?The liabilities were identified as President Biden and former President Trump.
Well, the current President has been out there and telling us how strong our economy is and how well we are doing. Not good if you’re a Democrat.
Now we have the former President getting involved with actions and words that cannot make Republicans happy.
Look at some of what Trump has said this week:

On mail-in balloting:
He lost in 2020 because he allowed the Democrats to own the process for months, while he bet it all on a single day of voting. That is why he lost, not because 85 million went out to vote for Joe Biden. They had three months!
Lesson learned? Not quite.
Check this story out from the friendly Washington Times:
Former President Donald Trump and other Republicans are discouraging mail-in voting, narrowing opportunities for their base to help get Republican candidates elected in the fast-approaching Nov. 8 elections. Mr. Trump has been railing against mail-in voting since it was expanded in the 2020 elections in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He has revived his warning at rallies for 2022 candidates in key swing states and warned that mailed ballots might be manipulated or lead to election fraud.
Mr. Trump’s disparagement of mail-in voting has led to fears of a repeat of the 2021 Senate runoff elections in Georgia, where depressed Republican turnout, spurred by Mr. Trump’s election fraud claims, helped Democrats win both Senate seats to seize control of the upper chamber.

Before the runoff election, Mr. Trump fought the state’s mail-in balloting rules and then called the election “rigged.” At a campaign rally last week in Mesa, Arizona, Mr. Trump  extended the warning to the midterm elections. He told hundreds of supporters to vote in person because voting by mail could lead to election fraud.  “You have to go out and, ideally, vote on Nov. 8,” Mr. Trump said. “You know, the mail-in ballots — or sometimes I will say things like the fake mail-in ballots, but I don’t want to say that because that’s so controversial — but the mail-in ballots are just not as good as being out there on Nov. 8.”

Then he goes around calling the Republican Senate Candidate in Colorado, a state where the candidate is competitive, “a RINO” and blasts him.
Former President Donald Trump on Monday denounced Republican Senate candidate Joe O’Dea as a “RINO” or a Republican in name only. Mr. O’Dea, who has mounted a spirited challenge to Democratic incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet in Colorado, drew Mr. Trump’s ire by pledging to “actively campaign” against the former president if he makes another White House run in 2024. “There’s this RINO character in the Great State of Colorado, Joe O’Dea, that is running against the incumbent Democrat for the United States Senate. MAGA doesn’t Vote for stupid people with big mouths. Good luck Joe!”
In a senate race where one senator can change the balance of power does this make sense? It only would if you cared about yourself more than the nation, state, party or future.

Then this story broke:
The Trump Organization charged the Secret Service exorbitant rates — more than $1.4 million — to stay at its hotels while protecting Donald Trump and his family. They had actually promised lower rates (some as low $50.00 per night), instead they paid $1,450.00.

There’s more on the former President – some of it because the media is obsessed – others because the former President is obsessed with himself.

Some Other News

A new Gallup Poll finds nearly two-thirds of Americans don’t trust that the media reports the news “fairly and accurately.”
This should surprise…no one.

A new study from a CTUP study shows that the US would be producing two to three million more barrels a day if the Trump policies were still intact and if ESG policies weren’t bullying companies to divest from fossil fuel development. 
If that were true we would have no oil issues and the price would be back to where it was on Election Day 2020, and our Strategic Reserve would still be filled.

By the way Georgia Gov. Kemp extended the existing suspension of the state’s tax on gasoline until after the elections. He cited economic strains.
This adds to our question about what happens after the mid terms to the price of a gallon of gas. Just watch.

Did you hear, that Secretary of Defense Austin signed off on a plan to change the names of U.S. military bases? Included are legendary bases like Fort Bragg and Fort Hood. The plan he said is to make the changes “as soon as possible.”
The report that recommends the stripping of all references to Confederate figures arrived at the Secretary’s desk 18 months after Congress mandated a Naming Commission to review the issue.

On Possible Election Ramifications

If Republicans win the House and Senate, these are rumored investigations they are already planning:
A deep look into the business dealings of Hunter Biden.
An investigation into the border policy.
A possible impeachment of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
A probe of the coronavirus’ origins, with a focus on Fauci’s role in approving controversial research programs.
A multi-committee dive into the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
A sweeping dig into the Justice Department and FBI, led by potential House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan.
